Thrive Beyond Series

Beyond Series

Although only first-year students in Thrive have required programming to prepare them for the rigor of college, Thrive’s Beyond Series provides students in their first year at KSU—and beyond—with annual opportunities to engage in networking, campus and community engagement, and career preparation.

In May 2018, the first Beyond Series event provided Thrive students with a half-day conference. Topics focused on helping students identify ways to get the edge as they prepare to graduate and enter the job market. The conference featured keynote speakers and workshops presented by:

  • Campus administration
  • KSU Career Planning and Development staff
  • KSU faculty
  • Thrive students and graduates

In May 2019, Thrive students will have the opportunity to attend another Beyond event. By attending this event, they will earn community service hours and identify ways to communicate key information regarding their experience on their resume and in interviews.  More information and sign-ups will be available here in March 2019.
